My wife and I took our 1 year old granddaughter here. They had some people reenacting the era. It was magnificent!! A low-key, relaxing, unique time. There are no big crowds and so many small details to enjoy. Kudos to the volunteers who really make this special. If you're single, a couple, a family, or just some friends hanging out, this is a pretty cool experience. Don't go if you're looking for loud and adrenaline pumping. The lack of those are why this place is chill. There is a nice museum here, too. Unfortunately, I only took one or two pictures inside to share. Entrance is free, but there's a donation box. Please give as you can. Ladies were there selling baked goods, too. They were delicious. Go check this place out! 😁

Bennett Place offers insight into the surrender of Confederates forces by Gen. Johnston to Gen. Sherman on April 26, 1865. It also shows how the rural farm family lived at the site. Very well- maintained site and very knowledgeable and friendly tour guides and visitor center volunteers. Highly recommended!

Liked the place, small, quiet with a little museum. You can walk outside at your convenience; liked the experience

A nice little museum with lots to offer in such a small space. Free, suggested donation five dollars. Factual account of the surrender of 90 thousand confederate troops, ending the Civil War. Monument and period buildings. Picnic tables and nature trails. Truly a hidden gem of Durham.
